From the single player, to the multiplayer, to the virtual reality…we have you have covered! We give a big shoutout to Morgan McFly for the new intro and outro…THANK YOU MORGAN! We also cover all the gaming news worth talking about this week: the confirmation of the PS5, Forza cutting off a potential Carlton lawsuit, the future of virtual reality, and even Kotaku idiocy.

Episode 69: Arcade1up

This week the boys welcome EGM founder/CEO, podcaster, and Arcade1up superfan Mike Rondeau to the show. They tackle the Kotaku AMA, how Fallout76 is still finding new ways to be terrible, Bungie breaking up with Activision-Blizzard, Division 2 going to the Epic online store, and streamers getting tons of money from their friends. Once they’ve finished with the news, they let their guest loose. Mike preaches the virtues of cabinet and retro gaming while Crowley tells you why you should spend your money more wisely…and buy cigars. Joe doesn’t care and Jason loves nostalgia as much as Mike. Make sure you check out Mike’s newest podcast, The Man-E-Faces of Masters of the Universe at EarGlueMedia.com

Episode 68: News and 2019

We kick off the show giving a shoutout to Stargate Pioneer for all of his help. We officially welcome Jason to Bad Gamers Anonymous this episode. He shares with us his history of gaming before we talk about what we’ve all been playing since Christmas. Somehow, we’ve all been bamboozled into playing SWTOR, and the guys absolutely destroy it…kind of…we still might play it. Then we cover all the gaming news from the first week of 2019: Bethesda settling a lawsuit with Warner Bros., Jason thinks Half Life 3 is happening (he’s wrong), Cliff Bleszinski is on broadway, and a Blizzard shakeup. We then dissect why Kotaku hires dumb people before Crowley praises old people playing games and we talk about the MadBox console announcement. We cover digital download vs physical copies of games before we briefly talk about 2019 games we want to play. We were way wrong about Ace Combat…it is NOT a PS4 exclusive!
